More ground beef is being pulled from store shelves. On Tuesday, Sam's Club stores in 32 states, including Colorado, announced a voluntary recall of frozen beef and sirloin patties. This notice is in cooperation with the USDA and Carneco Foods.
The patties were produced on February 22, 2002 at the Carneco Foods plant in Columbus, Nebraska. The company issued the voluntary recall on July 15th, after a trimmings sample tested positive for E.coli. At this time, there are no reported illnesses linked to this contamination.
Sam's Club stores sold the beef under the Northern Plains brand name. The following are specific products involved in the voluntary recall:
The Code dates are found on the bottom of the bag at the seal, or on the side panel of the box.
If you have any of these products, you're urged to return them to any Sam's Club for a full refund or replacement.
States affected by this voluntary recall include:
